e-infrastructure Roadmap for Open Science in Agriculture

A bibliometric study

The e-ROSA project seeks to build a shared vision of a future sustainable e-infrastructure for research and education in agriculture in order to promote Open Science in this field and as such contribute to addressing related societal challenges. In order to achieve this goal, e-ROSA’s first objective is to bring together the relevant scientific communities and stakeholders and engage them in the process of coelaboration of an ambitious, practical roadmap that provides the basis for the design and implementation of such an e-infrastructure in the years to come.

This website highlights the results of a bibliometric analysis conducted at a global scale in order to identify key scientists and associated research performing organisations (e.g. public research institutes, universities, Research & Development departments of private companies) that work in the field of agricultural data sources and services. If you have any comment or feedback on the bibliometric study, please use the online form.

Practice-Oriented Intuitive Approach for Engineering Undergraduates: A Case Study


Although mathematical illustrations are widely used to explain concepts in control engineering education, however it appears somewhat difficult for some students to understand in the initial stage and then results in reducing of their learning enthusiasm. We noticed that students have huge interesting and active attitudes about experiment. In this paper, we introduced the experiment of point-to-point movement, typically in manufacture industry, for the students with no any control knowledge. Based on the principles of traditional rotary motors, students are guided to design a linear motor platform. The linear motor moves from zero position to a desired position. Students are requested to do their best to design a controller based on their intuitions and experiment results. The results and problems occurred will encourage students to study control knowledge and back to solve the problems. This practice-oriented intuitive approach (POIA) offers an alternative to learning control theory from concrete experience, so students can grasp knowledge and relate control concepts to simple events. A case study is provided, which involves a team of five undergraduates with a project named linear motor driven inverted pendulum and controller design sponsored through the Undergraduate Research Program (URP) by China Agricultural University. The results confirm the effectiveness of the proposed method.
